The Great Tree of Avalon.
Fans of Barron's Merlin series will be thrilled with this first installment of a new chapter in a world steeped in legend. A younger Merlin planted a seed that over the years grew into the Great Tree, the gateway between Heaven and Earth. The ever-growing shadow of the Dark Prophecy looms over Avalon and over two youths in particular, Tamwyn and Scree, who each could be either the Dark Child, the bringer of ruin, or the heir of Merlin, the bringer of salvation. Easton is a perfect match to keep up with this suspenseful high fantasy. His rich tones make scenes vibrant, characters three-dimensional, and every adventurous twist captivating. Barron makes this a real treat by reading the introduction and doing a Q&A at the end. Julie Scordato, YA Libn., Columbus Met. Lib., Columbus, OH
